Guru Parva is another dessert that is celebrated as a celebration during this time of the year. It is very easy to make a simple snack made with jaggery syrup, with fried flour parathas.
Gur Parva is often used for traditional gifts of sweets during wedding ceremonies. This is the perfect home made dessert that you can make during this chilly season to keep yourself warm and enjoy the festivities. Guru Parva happens most during the festival of Makar Sankranti, and you can make it too, with this simple recipe video from YouTube channel ‘Manjula Ki Rasoi’.
How to do Guru Para:
You will need 1 cup maida, 2 tablespoons semolina and 2 tablespoons oil. For syrup, you will need 3/4 cup jaggery, 1tsp oil and 1/4 cup water.
1. Knead the dough with all the flour, semolina and oil. Gradually add water to knead a firm but smooth dough. Set it aside for 15 minutes.
2. Knead the dough again lightly and divide it into 2 parts. Then roll each portion to make rotis about 18 inches in diameter. Then cut them into small pieces.
3. Fry each mercury on a medium flame until it gets roasted and turns golden brown.
5. Allow the mercury to come to room temperature. Meanwhile, boil the jaggery and water on low heat till all the jaggery dissolves. Shake and cook until it thickens. Turn off the gas.
6. Now, drop all the mercury into sugar syrup and stir until the whole parwal is well mixed. The mercury will stick to each other so that you have to separate them with the fingers.
Your jaggery mercury is ready.
